DUBSTEP NIGHT FEAT.:
BASS FICTION LIVE (= KODE9 + THE SPACEAPE) + DJ BUN-ZER0
9.00pm : SOUNDTRACK BY... DJ BUN-ZER0 (SUB STANCE - SUB FM - STAINAGE)
A Brussels DJ - and producer - who lives and breathes dubstep. Listen to his programme on the English pirate radio station SubFm and hear how he mixes tracks by Digital Mystikz, Benga, Loefah and Burial seamlessly. Last year DJ Bun-Zer0 also compiled the album 'Sub Stance' (on Aeclectrick Records), a collection of international dubstep tracks including one that is home-produced ('Sneeze'). Last year on Domino - before and after the Skream set - he let the darkest and most delightful sub-basses boom through our speakers, and he is certain to do the same again.
10.30pm : BASS FICTION LIVE (= KODE9 + THE SPACEAPE)
Expect dubstep to continue its advance in '08. Of the triumvirate of dubstep pioneers, SKREAM, KODE 9 and BURIAL, the latter even made it to daytime airplay. Even the Soul Jazz label (cf. their excellent compilations such as '100% Dynamite', 'Studio One' and 'New York Noise') has thrown itself into dubstep with a new series, 'Box Of Dub. Dubstep and Future Dub', and there have been excellent releases by Dj Distance, Boxcutter, Mrk1 (only on Planet Mu) and by Pinch. It is now a case of waiting hopefully for the successor of 'Memories Of The Future', the debut album by KODE9, which will arrive later this year. And Kode9 is still all about producer Steve Goodman, one of the pioneers to bring London underground dubstep over to the European mainland. As well as doing his day job, professor of philosophy and criminology, he is the founder of Hyperdub (see also: Burial) and often puts on live sets with The Spaceape under the name BASS FICTION LIVE. They had been friends for some time, but their musical collaboration started in '04 with their reworking of Prince's 'Sign of the times' (renamed 'Sine Of The Dub'). Both present clever dubstep with radically chosen vocals that easily fill The Spaceape with pitch-black poetry.
